Anger Over Spanish Honour For Nigel Farage. The respected British figure is to be given a peerage by a member of the Spanish royal family at a lavish ceremony.
Anger Over Spanish Honour For Nigel Farage
Expats have expressed anger and disbelief after it was announced that British political figurehead Nigel Farage is to receive a peerage in the Spanish New Year’s honours list. Farage will be presented with a title and a trophy at a ceremony hosted by a member of the Spanish Royal Family in January.
A spokesperson for the palace, Sr. Maloliente Caca, told Costa Del Sol Update “We wanted to show our solidarity with the British community in Spain as Brexit is looming. There is no better way to do this than by bestowing one of Spain’s highest honours on a British figurehead, a man who has worked tirelessly to promote traditional values and unity to the commoners”.
Crown Prince Enrique
The ceremony will take place on the Costa Del Sol on the 29th January. This area this has the largest number of British residents in Spain. Crown Prince Enrique, 739th in line to the Spanish throne, will present Mr. Farage with his peerage. A palace spokesman said “The Crown Prince is extremely excited to be honouring Nigel Farage. His Highness spends most of the year at his palace in Calahonda, and is delighted to be asked to perform a Royal duty. The last time he was asked to do this was in 1987”.
Spanish Honours For Farage
Nigel Farage will be given the honorary title of Duke Of Los Boliches, he will be presented with the Torremolinos Within Andalucia Trophy award, and have a road named after him. The respected British politician is said to be overwhelmed to be receiving these honours, and hopes to attend to the ceremony in person.
Duke Of Los Boliches
At the moment, the title Duke Of Los Boliches doesn’t come with any actual power. However, after Brexit it’s thought that Nigel Farage plans to relocate to a moderately sized three bedroom villa in the area and take charge. A close friend of the Duke elect said “As soon as he can wield his power, Nigel plans to set about getting rid of all the foreigners and taking back control of Los Boliches. There is talk of wall building”.
Calle Nigel Farage
The Camino De Acevedo in Fuengirola is to be renamed Calle Nigel Farage in honour of the famous Brit. Expat Terry Lairy from Birmingham said “actually I’m not from Birmingham, I’m from Sutton Coldfield. This road is a great choice, it’s got a crematorium on it and a sewage treatment plant. Two things that are really in harmony with Farage and everything he has done for us”.
Nigel Farage Humbled
Baron Bollingrew, a close personal friend of Nigel Farage, says “Nigel is delighted by this. He has close ties to the Costa Del Sol, in fact his second cousin’s gardener’s sister’s daughter once holidayed in Torremolinos. These honours remind him of a time when a dustbin lid was named after him in Doncaster, and he is humbled by the generosity of the Spanish Honours Informative Team who suggested his name for the honours list.
The expat community has reacted with anger and disbelief at the honour for Farage. Anne Fernandez runs a Facebook group where expats can express their outrage at Brexit and other non political hot potatoes. She says “My members are outraged, why is Nigel Farage getting an honour? No one has done more to unite the British community in Spain than Theresa May, she should be getting these awards. Never before has one person been so disliked by people from so many different backgrounds and cultures. It’s amazing how people can come together and express their outrage as a community”.
